Meet Finaptic

Canada’s only end-to-end, white-label Banking as a Service provider.

Where strength meets innovation.

A few years ago, our founders were discussing the future of banking. Fintech companies were disrupting industries around the world. And while traditional banks sat back, content that there were some massive moats to cross in order to compete, we thought: playing defense isn’t much fun, how do we go on offense?

Little did we realize this simple question would lead to the development of an entirely new Banking as a Service model. One that combines the strength of a bank with the innovation of a startup to create a new banking ecosystem. A model that Canada has never seen before—but needs to support the next generation of financial solutions.

Here at Finaptic, “people-first” isn’t some marketing slogan. It drives everything we do. Our team members are not only experienced banking, sales and technology professionals; they are creative thinkers with a vested interest in the success of your business.
